Libraries are mostly ported at this point.

It's the applications and plugins that still need work. Here's the status in Fedora: http://fedora.portingdb.xyz

Yes. My friend is employed at Redhat and he told me that he also works on porting 2 to 3 (although not fulltime), and it is a huge amount of work. They work on it several years already, and it is still far from finished.

It's that why the default version of Python on RHEL 7.x is 2.7 instead of 3.x?

Also, rhel 7 is years old now and they almost certainly won't change something that big until rhel 8.
